  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1.5 cups blanched almond flour
  • 3/4 cup sprouted oats (see "Oatmeal" header in the post)
  • 1/8 tsp fine sea salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 pods cardamom, finely ground (about 1/8 tsp)*
  • 1 pinch freshly grated nutmeg (already ground would work as well)
  • 1/2 cup runny honey
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • freshly grated nutmeg for on top of cookie (fresh is best but pre-ground would too)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In a small dish mix flaxseed with water to make your flax "egg". Stir and set aside.
  • Heat coconut oil in a small saucepan to melt. Let cool.
  • In a medium-large bowl whisk together dry ingredients until clumps are removed.
  • Make a well in the center and add in cooled coconut oil, honey (use coconut oil measuring cup to make it easier), vanilla, and flax "egg".
  • Mix all ingredients together with a wooden spoon until everything is well-mixed and moist.
  • Add in raisins and mix until well-incorporated.
  • Scoop dough by heaping tbsp onto cookie sheet. Makes 15 cookies.
  • Divide the remaining dough to the cookies to make your 15. With slightly wet hands lightly press down cookies a tad + form them a little to be round.
  • Grate fresh nutmeg on top of the cookie.
  • Bake for 14 minutes until brown on top and edges brown. Oven times may vary.
  • Remove the whole pan to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then remove each cookie from the sheet pan onto wire rack to cool! May want to let a cook a bit more before biting in:).
  • Enjoy!


*I used a mortar and pestle to grind. Could also use a spice grinder. I have not tried substituting with already ground cardamom but I'm sure this would work as well.
